Conscience. One must know the difference between right and wrong and recognize that one has done wrong that has caused harm. Guilt is the emotional response to that recognition.

Are narcissist as bad as people say they are and how horrible are they?

In my personal experience being married to one for 17 years, the worst part, is that the victims involved, are often clueless as to the abuse that is taking place. The abuse cycle is often very subtle, while you are living it, but glaring once you are removed from the situation. The narcissist uses guilt followed by appreciation peppered with manipulation, lies, fear, and cruelty. When a narcissist seems content and happy with you, following an incident, make no mistake.... they are pleased with themselves that they have tricked you once again.
